Biden Administration’s “Most Unpopular Decision So Far”
The Biden administration’s decision to rescind Title 42 — a COVID-era measure put in place during the Trump administration to mitigate the spread of the coronavirus from undocumented migrants — is “this administration’s most unpopular decision so far.”
According to a new Morning Consult poll, the response indicates “the largest backlash against a Biden administration policy” since January 2021.
Fifty-six percent of poll respondents said no when asked if they “support the Biden administration’s removal of border controls put in place by the Trump administration in March 2020.” Of these respondents, 42% said they strongly disapproved.
Pollsters said the data indicates that President Joe Biden’s immigration policies are his “most unpopular” and “even when the president was enjoying favorable approval ratings early on, voters tended to disapprove of his handling of the issue.”
The survey was conducted April 1-4 among a representative sample of 2,003 registered U.S. voters, with a margin of error of 2 percentage points.
